Description Zack Cerza 2006-11-03 14:02:53 EST
Before I file a bug, I almost always run a query on that product/component to
see if it has already been filed. It'd save me (and probably others) lots of
time if, from show_bug.cgi (looking at one bug), there were a link to click
that'd bring me to the "new bug" form with the product and component equal to
the existing bug I just left.

Looks good! And especially that it has solution for
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=213915
Comment 2 Zack Cerza 2008-11-20 11:05:23 EST
That's great and it helps for Fedora, but I wouldn't call it a solution as it won't work for anything else in this bugzilla, e.g. RHEL.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this feature will need to be implemented against the new release.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2010-01-16 02:06:39 EST
This is very much alive as well.
Comment 6 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 17:42:26 EDT
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.

Thanks
Bugzilla Development Team

live and kicking
Comment 8 David Lawrence 2010-08-26 13:06:05 EDT
Just to be sure it is not a suitable workaround, how about using the "Clone this bug" link in the top right of show_bug.cgi? Only bad thing is it also pulls in all of the comments, summary, and other things that would need to be edited. Or is it that you are asking for a clear bug that already has the product/version set?

Dave
Comment 9 Zack Cerza 2010-08-26 16:13:39 EDT
No, cloning won't work very well for the reasons you mention. The other option is what this report is asking for.
